Fresh water and electricity is available at the boatlift. The lanai-enclosed heated saltwater pool has a misting system that lowers the temp at the sunbathing end of the pool in Summer, and a pool heater that warms the water to bathwater temp in the Winter. Manatee and Dolphin come up to the dock and there are large Sailfin Catfish and Sheepshead fish to be caught right from the dock or boatlift. You can also catch freshwater bass and trap blue crabs off the dock. Feel free to use our 4 fishing kayaks (the 4th one is not pictured) with rod holders, paddles and PFDs.

The home is located on a family-friendly cul-de-sac street in the coveted north end of Crystal River near the mall, restaurants and the downtown area. It is 5 min. from Crystal River Watersports where you can launch your boat for $10, buy bait and fishing equipment, and rent kayaks, paddleboards and other floatables. When not rented, the home is used by our family for personal vacations.

The third bedroom doubles as a den with a sleeper sofa for the bed. There is also another full bathroom located in the hallway. The flooring in the sunroom and throughout the entryways to the home is large ceramic tiles making clean-up easy and fast. There are three new flat-screen TVs; a 48 in. in the livingroom, a 40” in the den and a 32” in the master bedroom. Wi-Fi and cable TV are included.
This family-friendly home is located on a deep canal with Gulf access. The sunroom features seating to enjoy the pool, canal and wildlife. The pool lanai is screened with a special fine mesh to help keep even the smallest bugs out. The home is approximately 25 minutes from King’s Bay and 35-40 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico by boat.

Beautiful and peaceful Crystal River has activities for the whole family and offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. Offshore, there is shallow and deep water fishing.
The nearby mall has a multiplex movie theater, restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River. The house is only a short walk or bicycle ride from the Crystal River State Park Reserve and the Mullet Hole fishing spot. There are nine beautiful state parks nearby or play golf at one of the many nearby golf courses. Your family will make wonderful vacation memories here.

About Chuck Wade
The Wade family lives in Marietta, GA. about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. We vacationed in Crystal River rental homes for years before finally buying a vacation home here. We wanted a home in the family-friendly north end of Crystal River and our house is perfectly situated for what we were looking for. We considered Panama City Beach as a vacation home location and vacationed there often while making the decision between CR and PCB. We decided we like the nature coast best because there are no high-rise condos here in one of the last remaining natural areas of Florida, but Crystal River still offers all the modern conveniences of shopping, restaurants, supermarkets, movie theaters, a mall, quaint shops in the historic district, and more. It has everything we were looking for in a family friendly neighborhood.

Why Chuck Wade chose Crystal River
We chose Crystal River because it is so much more quiet and peaceful than other places we vacationed. We also enjoy watching the manatees and other wildlife from our sunroom and pool area. Our dream was to watch the manatee while enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. We also love the fishing and boating in the area, and being certified scuba divers our entire family likes diving and snorkeling the natural springs in and around the area.
What makes this house unique
After staying at dozens of different vacation rental homes we stopped and made a list of all the things we liked, and didn’t like. We picked this house with all of that in mind. We furnished the house with brand new furniture; all very good quality beds, mattresses, sheets and comforters. But the home is not cluttered like so many of the rental homes we stayed in. The kitchen is equipped with all the items you would find in your own kitchen, including quality knives, flatware, appliances, plates, wine glasses, napkins, towels, pots and pans, soap, detergent, and spices — everything you would need. There is a washer and dryer, iron, an ironing board, and bathroom supplies if you forget something. We want your family to enjoy yourselves and come back for many years. You can reach us at (404) 374-8523 to book one of the best vacations your family will ever have.
